Yang v. Dongwan Industries, 15-16881

Affirming the district court's order denying a motion to compel arbitration in a maritime action arising from the death of a seaman in the sinking of a fishing vessel because the Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards does not allow non-signatories or non-parties to compel arbitration or under the Federal Arbitration Act, which expressly exempts contracts of employment of seamen.
